Probably not, but is there anyway for me to use the buttons on my M$ Natural Keyboard Pro (like the ones that go to the next track, or pause music, and what not)? Seeing as M$ doesn't seem like the kind of people to support competitors (like Linux). Anyway, thought it'd be cool. Thanks.

When I try to install, it tells me that I don't have a new enough version of libxml. However, I have the newest version, I just emerged it. I even did the little --with-libxml2 switch (in several different formats) and it wouldn't recognize that I had libxml!! Why!?!

I do

echo "
keycode 144 = XF86AudioPrev
keycode 153 = XF86AudioNext
keycode 160 = XF86AudioMute
keycode 161 = XF86Calculator
keycode 162 = XF86AudioPlay
keycode 164 = XF86AudioStop
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 178 = XF86HomePage
keycode 229 = XF86Search
keycode 230 = XF86Favorites
keycode 231 = XF86Refresh
keycode 232 = XF86Stop
keycode 233 = XF86Forward
keycode 234 = XF86Back
keycode 235 = XF86MyComputer
keycode 236 = XF86Mail
keycode 237 = XF86AudioMedia
keycode 0x1A = e E EuroSign cent" | xmodmap -

After that I can use the extra buttons in KDE. It's reall convinient to have them for Noatun and kmix...

Cheers,
Andreas

Nope, that didn't work. Damnit. Maybe there would be different commands for, say xmms or fluxbox?

it appears that libxml is in fact too NEW, portage has 2.4.x and it is looking for 2.2.x. Sorry handt used this program in a while, I'll probably get around to getting it to compile with newer libxml2 if i do, i'll put a patch somewhere public

It doesn't work for me. It doesn't recognize all the keys, and it thinks some keys are ones that they're not. retarded.
